Re: Mantis integration with Trello

If that plugin solution works, it would be helpful to note it in the new plugins forum. Please note if it needs any kind of work, anything special to install, and if it's still maintained by the author.

Thanks.

Re: Issues associated to customers

If that plugin does what you want, but it's just no longer supported, please create a new thread in the new plugins forum so that we can talk about plugin-specific details. But if you're specifically looking for a way to populate a custom multi-select field with results of a query, yes, that's relat...

Re: Auto-Close plugin for 2.x

I tend to think of "customizations" as including plugins, but more general in nature.
Now that we have the new plugins forum it might be better to pull this discussion over there so that we can talk about plugin-specific details.

Re: Sharing authentication with wordpress

I was looking into this recently and found a number of inquiries and solutions to SSO with WordPress. Here are some links to kick off a line of thought. Parts one and two of an article on Amazon Cognito for SSO. Google Search for Cognito and WordPress : Lots of interesting hits. That led to this Wor...

Plugins 102 - Site-Specific Multi-Purpose plugins

People have preferences for how they'd like Mantis to work. These preferences don't apply to everyone. So while a general purpose plugin like EmailReporting is very popular, and has its own forum board here, other customizations aren't of interest to a general audience, so they should probably not b...

Have you already written a plugin?

All plugin developers are invited to post a separate note here about their own plugin. My goal here is to create an inventory listing of all of the resources we have available. A better home for this might be created later. Plugins identified here can serve as examples to other developers, as templa...

Plugins 101 - HowTo Get Started

To Get Started ... Decide if you really need a plugin. Search the rest of the forum to see if your challenge has been solved and how. See if someone has already pointed to a location in code where a change would help - or to an existing plugin. Post a note in this forum section to verify the need, ...

New Forum Board!

Hey Everyone - We're going to try something new here. Many of the questions in the general forum boards follow this pattern: Question: Can I do 'this' with MantisBT ? Answer: - You can with a plugin. - You can with a change to the core. - No, you cannot. Well, this is software, we can do anything we...

Enumerations/constants, same functional value?

There are cases where some ticket settings are functionally equivalent, though for context I'd like the text to be different. For example: With a Projection, all of the default terms assume something that exists is going to be changed: Minor Fix, Major Rework, Redesign But that doesn't apply to new ...

Re: Suggestion for this forum

Are you able in terms of time you can invest and in terms of needed technical skills to provide support for plugin development? If so, we could start a try with a new board and see what happens. Time yes, and I would be up for that challenge. I'm a fully capable developer (and business owner) just ...

Re: Suggestion for this forum

Then add a General sub-board to that. The idea is to encourage discussions about all plugin development, not just specific plugins. I thought about this some while ago, but didn't create a board for it as plugins are just one way of possible Mantis customizations (e.g. sometimes a topic starts with...

Re: Suggestion for this forum

I am not aware that phpBB offers something similar to Mantis tags. I found options to add so called tags to BBCodes, but I assume this is not what you are asking for. Please tell me where I can find the mentioned functionality in phpBB. Info and support Please change the description of the Plugins ...

Suggestion for this forum

I believe it would be helpful if we could get some phpBB enhancements: - Tags would be helpful for better filtering and finding topics. I'd be happy to help create tags, then tag posts as we go, and re-tag whatever mis-tagging is done by members. - I think we could use a board here for notes like th...
